Following up on the MEP's long-running and recently completed study group on Marx's Grundrisse, we will closely read and discuss extensive selections from Marx's Theories of Surplus Value (sometimes referred to as Volume 4 of Capital), supplemented by chapters from I.I. Rubin's History of Economic Thought.
The MEP's recurring series Hegel for Radicals continues this fall with a reading of Hegel's magnum opus, The Science of Logic. Familiarity with this work greatly aids any reading of Marx's Capital. Alex Steinberg will guide participants past the legendary obstacles to understanding this unsurpassed presentation of dialectics. Its depth and systematic structure is without parallel in any other of Hegel's works.
